Sierra Leone News: Liberian Police arrest Sierra Leonean for ‘Impersonating an Investor, Money Laundering’

Officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) are investigating a Sierra Leonean, James Lamin Kargbo, 41, for attempted theft, money laundering, fraud and impersonating an investor to build roads in Liberia. LNP spokesperson, Moses Carter, said on Friday, 7 December 2018 that, while in his act, suspect Karbo used a dubious company named, MEGA Strategic Partner Limited. Carter said, “The suspect, Kargbo, along with an accomplice (not named) have been in conversation via electronic media as well as appearing in person in Liberia with false impressions that they provide grants to the country for its road construction.” Suspect Kargbo meanwhile would inform prospective investors that he has been giving grants to other African nations, including Egypt and Sierra Leone for their road construction. However, according to Carter, while the discussion was going on Kargbo and his collaborator “criminally got access to Liberia’s swift code containing the country’s account number at the Federal Reserve.” He said Kargbo and his accomplice requested for a transfer of $32 million USD from Liberia’s reserve account, to be credited to their own account, but said the money was never transferred.
